Subject: Fw: Brennan Center report


Please see the request below from Patrick.   The work of the EAC's committee in USA is very important and I would ask you to take time to read the report and comment back to Patrick.   It also provides a very good opportunity to publicise the work of our committee and raise the profile of EML.  You'll see Patrick's  deadline is end August.

Many thanks,

FW: Brennan Center report


Please forward this report to the members of the OASIS Election & Voter
Services TC; requesting their comments over the next few weeks (before the
end of August if possible).  Please ask them to send their comments to me.

I have been asked to comment on the report directly to the Director of the
US National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) and to the Director
of the US Election Assistance Commission (EAC).  Specifically, they want to
know what standards from OASIS should be considered by the EAC's Technology
Guidelines Development Committee (on which I serve).  I would like to be
able to help position the EML specification as a candidate for their
recommendation, but I need to be able to position it within the context of
the voting process.  The EAC is interested not only in standards related to
election systems, but also standards that relate to security and
authentication of the systems and data used in the voting process (voter
registration information, etc.).  They are also interested in the
conformance and implementation testing of systems and software used in the
voting process.

They are also interested in experience from other countries who have
implemented secure voting systems, so the international participant comments
are especially appreciated.

For background information, members can review presentations made at a
symposium on voting systems from last December 2003.
